As a daily driver there are some things to consider. Do you want to keep your ac, if so, make sure your kit will allow you to keep it (this will apply to turbo kits). Another thing is where will the air intake be located (again, turbo kits), many are located very low and will not work well in very wet conditions or snow slush weather. Boosting will cost you plenty of cash, be ready for it costing more than expected.

Depends on the turbo system. The Roush kit (if you cand find one) is around $5k new. The are some other good ones out there as well. FSWerks makes one and I believe Focus Power makes one as well. Point is look to spend a few grand on a good system.
